17 Dog Photography Ideas To Make Your Heart Howl

Our furry friends are not only part of the family, they pretty much rule the household.

Some pooches rule with puppy dog eyes, others with royal finesse and others with all the silly antics they can muster.

Dog photography can capture all that and more, so whether it’s a studio session with a professional or an opportunistic shot on your iPhone, give your dog the star treatment with these 17 tail-wagging photo ideas.

Your Best Friend

While studio shots of your dog (or dogs!) are the new latest thing, how adorable is it when your dog’s favorite human is included?

Aside from including your dog in a family portrait, you can capture your child playing with his best friend, give your dog a part to play in your ‘save a date’ wedding announcement or even include them in your professional wedding photos.

If you’re single and your dog is your whole world, be sure to capture the charm of that relationship too.
